Wishfulfilment International Inc. (Part 4)

After a longish break, here finally the next instalment of our "jealousy" story:

"and to do that, you hack into people's computers."

IN YOUR WORDS, THAT SOUNDS LIKE AN OFFENCE, LUCY.

"hacking is one."

LET ME EXPLAIN. EXPERIENCE SHOWS THAT THERE ARE WISHES PEOPLE DARE NOT UTTER. IN THOSE CASES I VISIT THEM, AS IT WERE, AND OFFER MY SERVICES.    

"surely there are wishes nobody can fulfil?"

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR A PROFESSIONAL.

"that sounds impressive," you think, smirking. Of course, you don't believe a word that freak is writing. "but could somebody like me afford a wish fulfilment by
a pro like you? or are you going to tell me that your services are free?"

NOT QUITE. YOU'D HAVE TO AGREE TO OUR GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS. THEN YOU TYPE IN YOUR WISH, AND, PROVIDED ANY OTHER PARTY CONCERNED AGREES, YOUR WISH WILL BE GRANTED. HOWEVER, THERE IS NO EXCHANGE OR REFUND ONCE THE WISH IS PROCESSED.

"you haven't said anything about the price yet."

OH, HOW FORGETFUL. --- YOUR SOUL.

Despite the strange turn the conversation is taking, you have begun to enjoy yourself. But now you hoot with laughter. So far, what he's said sounded silly but plausible. Pity he's carried it too far. You leave the laptop and go to the kitchen to stow away your shopping.

You're half expecting the screen to be empty when you get back to your computer but the
writing is bigger than ever and there's a new icon labelled 'process wish now' flashing at you.

I DON'T WANT TO RUSH YOU, LUCY, BUT TIME IS MONEY. DO YOU WANT TO SWAP WITH THAT LADY IN THE POSH APARTMENT ACROSS THE CANAL OR NOT?
(To be continued)
